Bosporus Trip

(Istanbul) 
21 August
The journey over Bosporus  from Eminönü  covers a distance of approximately 30 kilometres to Anadolu Kavagi. This village is directly located on the Asian side of the confluence to the Black Sea.  On the waterfront there are small harbours, old forts like for example Rumeli Hisar  from 1452 and extensive parks. Noteworthy are several palaces (Yalis)  on the banks of the Bosporus. These splendid villas served as summer residences for the rich during Ottoman period. Because of various speculations made during the last century, now they are part of heritage. Bosporus Trip (Istanbul)
